Graduate Audition & Interview Dates 2020-2021

Auditions and interviews will be held in a virtual format for the coming season. For the programs with dates not yet listed, please check back frequently as we are continuing our discussions with faculty to determine available dates.

 

Detailed Audition Information

Auditions and interviews will be scheduled after a successful review of an applicant’s complete application materials, submitted no later than the application deadline. All audition invitations with date confirmations will be sent via email on a rolling basis. Be sure to review your program’s audition and pre-screening requirements before submission.

About ten days before your audition, you will receive an email confirming your virtual audition details (date, time, and Zoom meeting information).

Rescheduling Policy

We understand that sometimes things happen, but whenever possible please let us know at least 24 hours in advance if you cannot attend your audition/interview. If you ask to reschedule, we will do our very best to accommodate you but understand it may not always be possible.

If you have questions about your audition and/or interview, please contact Joshua Bolton (music.auditions@umich.edu) (734.763.6677).
